Prudent Maintenance

Wear a medical glove when picking up litter.

After you notice that the lawn is shaggy, mow the minute weather permits. Doing so will produce thick, healthy turf.

Control weeds as soon as they are big enough to pull. The medical forceps I use to modify stooping for litter are good for grasping the crowns of tiny weeds.

Dead stalks that stand over the winter break the wind and protect new growth from frost. They also harbor predator insects that control pests.

Known in some circles as "Dr. Foxglove", this invasive biennial grows itself, is beloved of bees, and encourages healthy growth in other plants -30-
